ask the nurse/doctor what the ck and trops are.. if it's + more likely she had a heart attack... if negative, they;ll just probably have her do a stress test in the am. the telemetry monitor is just there to monitor her heart rhythm and for any changes... they'll be giving her some betablocker, aspirin, and some type of blood thinner (heparin or lovenox). if she is positive for a heart attack they'll refer her to a cardiologist
